Last minute booking but lovely guest house. Every little detail thought of. Lovely soft towels, even provided a bath robe, toothbrush and mini seeing repair kit. Leon, the proprietor was really helpful, even though I didn't arrive until nearly 8 pm Leon ensured I settled in ok and offered recommendation for local restaurants. Lovely breakfast in a really nice breakfast... More

Wonderful weekend! Everything was top notch. The room was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was best we've had at a guest house. Leon, our host, is freindly and professional. Nice location downtown. I hope we'll be back.

We only booked this as an overnight stop but would have loved to stay longer. The rooms were very well turned out, the breakfast spot on and I was even invited for a cup of tea on arrival! If I'm back in the area I'll definitely b booking this again.

We will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone. The owners go the extra mile to ensure your stay is perfect. This was a special birthday treat and... More

We must have visited this beautiful place for around 12 years now... If you are looking for a classy, friendly and enjoyable stay, then look no further! This is a must visit guesthouse, in a town with lots of character. The variety of breakfast is amazing and cooked perfectly.... Proper home from home for us! We will be visiting for... More

Ideal location for the centre of Penrith, being only a couple of minutes away. The rooms are superbly comfortable, and are spotless. It isn't possible to fault the place. I have stayed a handful of times, and will always go back as my place of choice when working close by. Very good value, great breakfast, comfortable bed.

We had secured lodging in another establishment which was simply not suitable for us. It appeared that our vacation was going to be unpleasant to say the least. We called about and found Brooklands. Brooklands is absolutely wonderful. The food was superb and the room was comfortable. The price was reasonable to the point of being too low. We simply... More

Stayed here with a colleague when working in Penrith for just over a week and was blown away by the facilities and service at Brooklands. The rooms were luxurious and the beds very very comfortable. Leon was a very accommodating host and provided an excellent choice of breakfast every morning. Great value for money and all round one of the... More

This B&B is top notch. We had been travelling down from Scotland and foolishly hadn't secured a room for the night before leaving. We travelled up and down the Lake District and could find no room at the inn ! Luckliy for us we called into a big hotel in Penrith and although they were full the receptionist realising our...

Wow! What can we say that hasn't already been said? Thrilled with everything and when Leon produced de-caff tea for me that completely made my stay. Everything had been thought of and Leon was most attentive. Will definitely be back.
